Climate Action Plan

  1. Climate Change and Greenhouse Gases
  2. Climate Action and Adaptation
  3. What are the Impacts?

Climate change can be defined as a continuous shift of weather patterns and temperatures. Excess greenhouse gases emit from anthropogenic activities, especially from burning fossil fuels, and gather in the atmosphere. The gases act as an incubator and warm the climate by preventing heat radiation from escaping out into space. This heat energy dissipates by reacting to the surrounding environment and causing catastrophic weather events to occur, therefore negatively impacting local communities. The climate crisis develops social injustices, influences infrastructure and economic losses, and poorly impacts the health and well-being of the environment.
